The Hull and Selby Railway was opened 2 July 1840. Wressle station does not appear to have been an original feature of the line;[note 1] however a market day service from "Wressel Bridge" was recorded in 1843.
The station was in full use by 1855. The station was a single storey brick structure with a verandah, located on the south platform. The spellings Wressel and Wressle have both been used, with the 'Wressle' becoming standard after around 1863.
The station has very basic amenities - it has a waiting shelter on platform 1, a single customer help point on platform 2 and timetable poster boards on each side. There is no ticket machine, so passengers must buy in advance or on the train. Step-free access is available to both platforms via the level crossing at the eastern end.
Seven trains a day call at Wressle (Mon-Sat) in the December 2019 timetable (mostly in peak periods); four to York and three to Hull. Two of the Hull trains continue to Bridlington via Beverley since the December 2019 Timetable Change. No trains call on Sundays. A normal Monday to Friday service operates on Bank holidays.
The station, and all trains serving it, are operated by Northern.
